Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings 4, Durham Bulls 0
The Red Wings scored all four runs in this game in the bottom of the second inning off Durham Bulls SP Jose De Leon. Remember him? He was the guy the Dodgers wanted to trade to the Twins for Brian Dozier straight up. He also somehow gave up two doubles to Red Wings LF J.B. Shuck. Huh.
SP Jason Wheeler pitched seven shutout innings giving up only five hits and no walks what-so-ever. Nine strikeouts too.
Look at RP Trevor Hildenberger, pitching two scoreless innings with only one hit and no walk. He has a 2.70 ERA in Triple-A now this year.

High-A: Dunedin Blue Jays 3, Fort Myers Miracle 2
My absolute favorite part about this game is that two Blue Jays batters in a row were called out on the infield fly rule in the first inning. One of them also happened to be SS Troy Tulowitzki, on rehab assignment. That will forever be my favorite part of this game.
Alas, despite the infield fly outs the Miracle did not when. SP Lachlan Wells made a valiant effort, but kept bleeding runs—one in the first, another in the second, a home run to Tulowintzki in the fifth, yadda yadda.
I supposed the good news is 1B Zander Wiel went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in the sixth. Too little, too late, though.
Low-A: Clinton LumberKings 7, Cedar Rapids Kernels 1
It was not a good day for Kernels SP Domenick Carlini, to say the least. Although he made it at least five innings, he gave up seven earned runs on eleven hits in the process. Carlini is now riding a 5.97 ERA on the year.
Frickin’ RF Jaylin Davis his another home run, though. It was already his tenth of the year.
